The last chapter of ‘Final Exam’ is here, and wow, that was a blockbuster finish, Gage always finds a way to surprise you. I want to skip most of the issue which was just a fight, and get to the end where Finesse just leaves Jeremy Briggs to die. What a fantastic, dark moment. It’s not what you expect from Avengers or heroes in general, but as Finesse herself says, they weren’t chosen to be in Avengers Academy because they were the most heroic, it’s because they were at risk of becoming villains. Finesse’s actions here were shocking, and I can’t wait to see if there’s any reaction to it, wither in this title’s last 2 issues or Avengers Arena (and I think this issue demonstrated that some of these characters are actually pretty well-suited to a Battle Royale-type situation). I mean, not only did Finesse kill Jeremy, but she let X-23 think she did it, only adding to her guilt, and on top of that, the rest of the team didn’t seem that bothered about it. It’s going to be strange going from this to a game of Flag Football next issue, but that’s one of the best things about this book, it can go from one extreme to another and have it all fit together.
